He’s Spooky scares off the competition at Dover

Dover, DE --- He’s Spooky rushed through the passing lane to catch the front-trotting Green Day in the last two strides in track record time for an older male trotter -- 1:53.2 -- at Dover Downs on Wednesday Jan. 30.

He's Spooky, inside, got up to defeat Green Day in Dover's feature.

For the second straight week driver Eric Carlson enjoyed a perfect, two-hole trip and then stormed past the leader to record victory in the week’s feature trot. Corey Callahan had Green Day away quickly and led until the final stages. E L Rock and Tim Tetrick took an unsuccessful shot at Green Day on the backstretch, to no avail. Green Day was second, with E L Rock, third. Anders Bluestone was a late scratch from the feature.

The win was the third in a row for He’s Spooky, owned by Howard Taylor, Alan Kaplan, L.A. Express Stable and Rojan Stables and trained by meet leader Mike Hall of the Doug Lewis Stable. The Cantab Hall--Yankee Topaz 6-year-old won for the third time in five starts in the New Year. He has now won $298,474 in his career.

Jim Morand had a driving triple. Corey Callahan, Jim Morand and Brad Hanners had two wins apiece, while Jon Roberts collaborated with owner-trainer Bobby Glassmeyer on a double.
